Nothing shy of memory

The caretakers here are the sweetest people. Taking my 2 and 6 year old on their first camping experience we chose this place and they told us as we checked in that they wanted their 1st camping trip to be awesome…loaded us up with some complimentary firewood…let us pick out our tent plot, and directed us toward the bathrooms and drinking water….and that's where the good part of the review ends. We had to change plots 2 times bc as we unloaded our gear and attempted to set up camp we were welcomed and not left unpested by snakes of all sizes and large insects…it was dark when we managed to lay my already sleeping children down in the tent…the night air was clouded with mosquitoes but the moon was full and the stars were amazing. Coyotes could be heard in the distance…we thought…until around 3 am when we were startled awake by what appeared to be large dogs without leash, collar, or owner licking our tent. Circling our tent….The morning daylight couldn't come fast enough…The bathrooms were dirty and infested with various insects and covered in cobwebs…a short walk to the waters edge sent us home w 2 children covered in chigger and mosquito bites …extremely disappointing.

Great sty

Chill, low key environment. Management super friendly and amenities (bathrooms, showers) kept clean. Great spot for family.

Clean, friendly and close to the lake

This is great campground within close proximity to Longview Lake.  Our kids enjoy the spots near the playground.

Quiet and peaceful

Longview campground is not only peaceful and quiet but also in a very pretty area filled with wildlife.   There is an attendant and security arms when entering the campground and requires a key code to enter.   There are over 100 sites with tent, electric, and full hook ups. The campgrounds are open from April-end of September with prices from $21-33.  

There are fire grills and picnic benches at each site and the sites are level on gravel. There is a playground, volleyball net, restrooms and showers. There are 6 picnic shelters with bathrooms scattered on the way to the marina. The lake is beautiful but is not within walking distance from the campground.

We stayed from a Saturday night until Thursday. There weren’t a lot of campers so it was nice and quiet.  We saw deer running through the campgrounds and will stay again.

Zero lake access

All of the campsites are designed for campers so there’s minimal grass areas for tents. Almost all are full sun and there’s zero lake access from the campground.

Spacious spaces

Spent 1 night at Longview Campground as we get used to our new-to-us pop up. We were in spot 43. Electric only 50/30. Our spot had good shade in the afternoon but most did not so check the website’s descriptions. Plenty of room to spread out, fire ring and picnic table. Long walk to the bathroom, even longer walk to the showers. We camp with our dogs and there were plenty of others also. One particularly rude neighbor, let theirs bark all night long.

It’s fine

Decent time. Not as nature-y as I would’ve like, but worth visiting.

Quiet, clean campground

Nice camping area. We have stayed at this campground multiple times when visiting the KC area for sporting activities. Showers are clean. Sites are well taken care of. Never had any issues with noise, etc. It is a great spot to set up camp and then take advantage of all that KC has to offer.

Nice and quiet

Lots of sites to choose from overlooking the lake. Lots of secluded sites and hiking trails.

late notice/local

was able to get in to full hook up sight with less than 24 hr notice. (rarity) weather was perfect and campground nice! wouldn’t know you were just minutes away from the “big city”. *will be back!
